Well I haven't been on in a while but figured I might as well post the cheap ol $500 car I got for a summer project. Its a 1991 Ford Probe GT(turbo). needs a fuel pump relay. Thats all I know of so far. Got a new radiator already.. Big plans for this bad boy.





Already half gutted

Can these things even be fast? I didnt even know Ford made a turbo Probe :dunno: until the other Probe in the for sale section was posted.

Yes, they can be fast. A 1990 non-turbo one holds the record for fastest 4 cylinder non-turbo closed lap at Daytona International Speedway, like 166mph. One of my friends had a Probe and was really into it, turned out to be a cool car for a Ford/Mazda.

Yah i got a project I could have fun with. I wanted a sleeper.. No one expects a probe to be fast. And it should probably be in a junkyard.
